Tash and Adam wanted all the c o l o u r for their wedding flowers, and luckily the dahlias, zinnias and crocosmia all delivered. As did Rod. Special thanks to @organicblooms for giving us free reign to cut some additional stems from their beautiful cutting garden and lots of admiration and respect to @emily_winterbourne for the stunning cake. #tadfest
Watched this episode today, season 2 just slayed, also trying making a brighter new theme 💖 I hope I can stick to it, reason I hate changing theme is cause I can't really remember how I made them 😂

'The man who wants a garden fair,
Or small or very big,
With flowers growing here and there,
Must bend his back and dig.
The things are mighty few on earth
That wishes can attain.
Whate'er we want of any worth
We've got to work to gain.
It matters not what goal you seek
Its secret here reposes:
You've got to dig from week to week
To get Results or Roses.'
(People's Poet Edgar Guest, b 20th August, 1881)
Results and Roses at the Annual Village Show yesterday.
This dahlia claimed the Silver Cup for Most Outstanding in Class.
Frieda, a fierce Scottish matron with gnarled stick and navy handbag walked me round the exhibits, from French beans to custard creams, lemon curd to freckled eggs, she dished the dirt, literally, on the who what where of competitive showing. . (See stories...)
Then followed a delish afternoon tea with the ladies of the committee, more on that to follow.... 🙄
I'm off into the hills, it's a crisp and blue skied morning here, apparently five kingdoms can be seen from the fells on a clear day.
Have fun whatever you're up to in your kingdom!
